According to CNN, the United Kingdom has just issued a travel advisory warning its LGBT citizens about traveling to regions of the United States, particularly Mississippi and North Carolina.
I'd be inclined to include anyone of any gender preference in travel warnings about Mississippi, Alabama, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Texas and Arizona.
Where I am certainly isn't a problem because this isn't where the troglodytes tend to live. The local university, UNCG (University of North Carolina at Greensboro) is sometimes known elsewhere in the state as UNCGay because it's gay friendly. And this area voted against Amendment One and local churches and synagogues mobilized against HB2.
However, governmentally, this place is the pits.
For what it's worth, there are ignorant bigots in SoCal too, but in this particular case they were imported from Kansas: Principal defends students after gender-neutral bathroom fight,
"...Students leaving the Santee Educational Comples Tuesday tussled with protesters dressed in black and yelling from a bullhorn. A video of the brawl aired on KABC-TV showed one person punching another on the ground while onlookers yelled and other students were held back. No one was seriously injured or arrested.
Sgt. Edward Bernal with the Los Angeles School Police Department said the protesters were members of the Westboro Baptist Church, an anti-gay group. Police were expecting protesters to appear at the school again Wednesday and placed additional officers at the scene, though no demonstrators showed up. Instead students held a peace rally, waving gay pride rainbow flags and carrying signs, including one that read, "Keep Calm, It's Just a Toilet."
How Proud We All Must Be.
Most LGBTQ people whom I have ever talked to around the world think the US is predominantly full of rednecked bigots who hate LGBTQ people (a view I agree with).
I just wish more of the rednecks shared this guys opinions:
I think I just became that guy's fan. Separate bathrooms for Catholic priests. Truly Excellent. Thanks, Amy
Sounds like England is serious about giving their citizens good advice.
This 'issue' just encapsulates the Far Right- LGBT and for sure Trans folks in particular are constant victims in all sorts of ways, and, unlike the priesthood, have virtually no reputation for attacking anyone else. But those are just facts, so lets not let them get in the way of some good ol' fashion hatin.
... and our transition to full 3rd world status continues apace.
